Abstract:

  • (Short paper)

    Keywords: Body, Interactivity, Interfaces, Representations, New Media.

    The present work looks into the place the body occupies within interactive experiences. Firstly, we explore the nature of the machine in its corporeal dimension, and the human body in the digital representation process. Then, a classification is proposed for the modes of articulation of the participant’s body in interactivity, following various analytic frameworks. Finally, we analyze the difference between the physical bodies within an experience and the construction of the bodies present in the artwork, outlining the dialogue between technical engineering and the symbolic dimension.
